OUR van

I just made the final payment on our van.

Now, I know what David Ramsay (and every other financial advisor) says about not taking out a loan for a car. What can I say. . . seminary + 3 kids + car death = loan for car.

So, with that experience behind us, we press on toward the debt-free prize; my heart, hard with years of debt-free pride, now softened to see I even need Jesus in this area of life. *repentant sigh*

Rejoice with us!

Hallelujah! We have always had two cars but one of them has always been paid for so having one car payment has been a blessing. Mitch usually drives the car we "own" since it's usually bought off the scratch and dent lot! HA!

So happy for you! We came into seminary with zero debt. Four years later and guess what? Yep. We had a credit card bill. We never had one in the whole of our marriage leading up to seminary.

We paid it off LAST WEEK and I keep logging into the bank just to see the zero balance on it. :)

Feels so good, doesn't it? Enjoy it while it lasts...
